Do they not have a record of the entitlement?
Do you have a copy of either? When was this?
Its about 13 years ago, as for them having a copy, i have no idea, one would think that once a test has been taken and passed that the examiner would have a record of it.
It may take me some time to locate the details, it was some time ago.
Thank you. I am aware of the problem.
I have ridden motorcycles for many years and it has beenwidely reported in the press and motorcycle forums.
The DVLA records are incomplete and they are taking ahard line even though it is their fault. Here is one such thread http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120410123957AAclSVb
If you can find copy license showing the entitlement youhave a chance if you send it to them but otherwise I am afraid that you arefaced with taking your test again.
I have a licensed copy in my top drawer for exactly thesame reason.it first came to light a few years ago.
The problem is that there is no way of differentiatingthose people who genuinely did have the entitlement and the say they had,because they want it, and are now maintaining that they lost it.
If you know the date and location of where you took yourtest it may assist but those records may have already been destroyed
I wish I could give you better news, but there is nopoint in me misleading view. You are one of tens of thousands probably who arein the same situation
